About the book

The North Platte Telegraph is proud to again partner with the Lincoln County Historical Museum to celebrate west central Nebraska’s century-old legacy of hospitality to America’s armed forces in “Canteen: The Letters,” the sequel to our 2019 book, “Canteen: As It Happened.”

The story is told in heartwarming letters dating to the present day by some of the 6 million U.S. and Allied service members who not only visited North Platte’s World War II Canteen but also expressed their thanks and shared their stories through letters and telegrams they, their loved ones or their descendants sent to North Platte. This hardcover coffee-table book is a must-have keepsake as well as a thoughtful gift!

      Exceptional Book

      I am from North Platte and remember going to the Canteen with her when it was her time to work. This book is wonderfully done and brings back some fond memories. North Platte is a great town with great people as this book will attest. I am proud to call it my home town.
